Bahaus hostel is located extremely close to the blue mosque, so is in the perfect place if you want to go around and see the city. The personal is very nice and kind, they will try to help you as much as they can! We had dinner once at the hotel and it was very cheap and good! We suggest it very much.

Great Hostel, really wonderful location. The front desk guy had great suggestions of where to eat, visit etc. One night we had a pubcrawl which was a lot of fun. It wasn't the most secure hostel I have been to, but with that, I felt no worries of anything happening to my stuff. Great amenities in the room, except that wifi didn't reach into the all girl room all the way. Had to stand by door. But would definitely recommend and stay again!

One of the best hostels I've stayed in... . Had problems with missing luggage from the airline I flew with, the hostel sorted it all and my bags were delivered a few days later. Excellent.

This is one the best hostels I've ever stayed in. It's very well located and you can get to all the major attractions either on foot or by using the tram line that is nearby. The hostel is very clean, and the staff are very helpful. If you can find Cinar at the reception, he will answer all your questions about the city, and his tips are invaluable! The bar at the rooftop has a stunning view of the Marmara sea, and having breakfast up there is something you will never forget.

This is a hostel for the under 30s. There is a bar on the top and a common room (as in 3 couches) at reception. I was not allowed to sit here with the light on or to speak to the other 2 people there after 11 as there are hostel staff sleeping next to the common room. This is despite the fact I could hear the music from three floors up!! Hostel is good for exploring historic quarter but is over 2 miles (3km) from Istanbul nightlife. Wouldn't stay again because of age and location.

The hostel was in a fantastic location and the staff were very helpful in providing recommendations. However, the bathroom wasn't very clean although the shower was hot and powerful.

The staff was really incredible and went above and beyond what was needed- from helping me get a cab (and not get ripped off) to warning me where I should not wander on my own. The place itself is on the older side but the roof top is pretty incredible and the location is perfect.

It was really a great experience to stay at Bahaus. It is very centrally located with all the major tourist attractions at a walking distance (such as Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Grand Bazaar, Galata Bridge etc.) The area is very safe and has some really nice souvenir shops and restaurants. The staff is very friendly. Hostel is quite calm and gives you an opportunity to relax. I loved my stay here and I would totally recommend it for anyone looking for cheap yet awesome stay in Istanbul. Have fun!

Thanks again to the great team at Bahaus, everyone was incredibley helpful. Simply everything was great! Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, and a plentiful breakfast. The saturday I arrived just so happened to be the night of the infamous Pub Crawl, Mustafa, Laura and Gustavo made one heck of a party. The hostel made some of the best kebabs and also offerered great insider tips on where to eat and things to see, not just in Istanbul but in all of Turkey. Thanks again guys, see you next time!!!!!

Staff were helpful and happy to suggest things to do. The hostel is close to the Blue Mosque and only about a 15minute walk to the Grand Bazaar. Rooftop bar has great views
